Well, today, it all came back to us with this image of Kidman dolled up as Princess Grace. Our first reaction was that Kidman looks elegant, beautiful, ethereal — all good adjectives to bring up you're talking an actress portraying one of the most gorgeous women ever captured by celluloid.
But, then, we started thinking: Is Kidman too done up here? Isn't it going to make a difference that she's far taller and lankier than Kelly ever was? What about the fact that, for all her agelessness, Kidman is almost a decade and a half older than the new princess was during the period of the film? Does this semi-alien picture really resemble the woman who once epitomized the all-American beauty? Couldn't they just have gotten ScarJo or someone else for this? Are we being too picky? We just don't know.
Tell us what you think along with any alternate casting suggestions in the comments. (Ace Showbiz)
